Argus: A well known Fargo republi can has made abet of $75 to 8100, that as between Harrison and D. 15. Hill, Hiil would be elected. He didn't seem to rel ish Blaine's declination. John Walsh handed in a "green goods'' circular yesterday, received by him. The mails are Hooded with this species of literature, but if suckers are caught in the land of No. 1 hard they never tell about it. Bismarck Tribune: In accordance with the orders of the city council, Chief of Police Molloy was around yesterday noti fying all the "blind pigs" he could find that they must immediately slose up shop and retire from business—or pay the penalty. Volume 1, reports of the supreme court of North Dakota, is out of press. The first result of Reporter Camp's labor is about COO pages of print, and covers something like sixty cases. It is under stood there will be matter enough for Vol. 2 to go to press by the 1st of May. A new tinBhop will be opened in a few days, at the corner of Front and Fourth etreets, in the building now occupied by A. W. Kelley. Johnson & Thornhill are the new tirm. The latter, who has been with Kirk, Allen & Hathorn for the last ten years aad is well known, will manage the store. Mr. Johnson will crop the Davenport farm as usual this season. Rolla Star: The claim that wheat remaining in the stack all winter cannot be depended upon for seed is pretty generally disputed by the farmers. H. A. Carpenter, of Island Lake, has given the matter a practical test and the result certainly disproves the theory. He threshed last April three stacks of wheat, which had been stacked the pre vious fall, and used said wheat in seed ing 115 acres, using only one bushel to the acre, the yield being from thirty to thirty-five bushels to the acre. E. P. Wells: Our oompany has forclosed over 250 mortgages on real estate, in this state, and never before this year has any one, besides the mortgagee, offered to bid in any property for more than the amount of the mort gage. A short time since some one in Wells county got apiece of good land by bidding more than the amount for which it was sold. This is the first case of the kind we have had. Also, we never had a sale redeemed until this year. It shows that people are picking up land now days, when they can get bargains. r'rom Friday's Dallv. Rev. E. H. Teall returned from Michi gan this morning. Dr. R. G. DePuy paid a visit to friends at Bismarck, Wednesday. 'lhe Tribune says five new billiard halls were opened in Bismarck, Wednes day.

Owing to a contemplated eastern trip of Mr. Wells, which will be of several weeks duration, Alfred Dickey is expect ed in Jamestown soon. He is now at Everett, Wosh. Mr. Dickey was recently among those who were granted nn orig inal pension from the government. Fargo Argus: Secretary E. II. San- ford of the North Dakota Republican leagub, is in from Jamestown to assist the executive committee in distributing republican literature und polling the ,r „._ votes of the state. His headquarter* are in the rooms of the Flambeau elub. Rolla Star: Jamestown is a candidate for one of the republican state conven tions. Its selection as the place for holding theconvention for the nomination of state officers would prove eminently satisfactory to the republicans of the nineteenth district. Of course, James town can't expect either of the demo cratic state conventions—it's too far from Moorhead and East Grand Forks, The decision of Judge Rose in the Moran case, was that the place was a nuisance, and the order issued was for the abatement of the same. The pro visions of the prohibition law require in such cases that the furniture and fixtures be destroyed, and the building closed for a year. This senseless and unnecessary provision destroys chairs, tables, mirrors and other furniture which could.better be given to the poor than wantonly broken up and destroyed. The nnisanoe is abated—what more can be done? Niemeyer & Game's new billiard hall was opened last night, and the place was thronged with a large crowd of patrons and friends of the firm. An elegant lunch of cold turkev, salads, etc., was set up, together with liquid refreshments. The interior of the building has been handsomely decorated, is well lighted, and promisee to become one of the most popular pleasure resorts in the city. The raffle for a horse valued at $150, belong ing to Dan Ringer, resulted in the dis posal of the animal to a syndicate com posed of Frank Lenz, Louis Niemeyer, George Game, Harry Crossley and Wm.

Baker entertained her Sab bath school class of a dozen young men also their young lady friends, on last eveuing. Col. J. W. Goodrich of this city, haB been honored by Gov. Burke with an ap pointment on the board of the Mayville Normal school. Mr. Goodrich will make an active and sensible member. A beautiful and costly pulpit set con sisting of a desk and two chairs have been put into the Congregational church. The above is a gift from Mrs. V. L. Craig of 8piritwood, ard some friends, and is highly prized by the church. The local democratic club is said to be contemplating th«- erection of a hall, adapted to their purposes, and which can also be rented toother organizations.The club has a membership of about 300, is well officered, and in excellent circum stances financially. Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Camp expect to leave in a short time for Chicago on a brief visit. They will visit Waukesha, Wis., where Mr. Camp's father is still in feeble health. The long southern trip contemplated may now be abandoned, from lack of time to make same, on ao count of Mr. Camp's professional duties. Andrew Blewett expects to attend the meeting of the democratic state com mittee at Grand Forks, next Thursday. He thinks Jamestown can easily secure one of the conventions of that party, but is not sure that it would be best to ask for the honor. Local sentiment will be sounded upon the subject pnd proper action takeu. Should it be the creneral desire to invite the holding of one of the conventions here, and the committee so decides, one thing is assured—James town will take care of the gathering in good shape. Rev. E. H. Teall: My eastern visit was in no sense a pleasant one. I arrived in Michigan before mother died, but none too soon. My sister was still very low whfn I started home. Lagrippe and kindred diseases are very prevalent and result more seriously than in this cli mate. There were thirty-four funerals in a town of Jamestown's size in that state last month. Rain, sleet and snow were every day elements which made up the weather there during my stay. T. 8. Wads worth: In Montana stock raised on the larger ranges increases only about 30 or 40 per cent a year. In North Dakota small herds inorease much faster, in many cases as high as 100 per cent. Cattle and horses do as well in this state as any place I know of, in fact I do not believe there is a state in the union where stock will do us well as this. As for sheep they require more care in winter, but the only condition necessary for successfully managing small flocks of she#p, at a handsome profit, is plenty of shed room in winter and sufficient hay. Most farmers, in my opinion, at tempt to handle loo many sheep. This TTiiTTMiigHiimirmrnTir'n^TMMTrrMMfT'*'t*""'"——r~—-~r-i 1 .... winter has been hard on stock and it be gan so early that nearly all farmers were not ready for it. The cold weather has lasted muoh longer than usual, also, but it is better to have it now than later in the spring. Another year will not catch the farmers unprepared for any kind of weather. From Tuesday's Dailv. Thermometer: 27 degrees below zero at 8 o'clock. Miss May Utley, who has been visiting some weeks at Fargo has gone to Chi cago. Mayor Fuller and H. B.

A freight train was wrecked east of Bismarck this morning, but it is claimed none of the crew were injured. No par ticulars can be obtained. Mrs. John Bollinger pleased her young friends greatly Saturday by entertaining them at her house in the evening. There was a fine supper spread, music and games indulged in.and every one seemed to greatly enjoy the occasion. Judge Baldwin says he expects Consul Nickeus home from South America, in April, for an extended visit. Mr. Nickeus writes that himself and family are in good health.

Sykes, who owns a considerable number of acres around Edgeley. Mr. Martin said that it was his intention to get the land set tled with good industrious farmers. With suoh men at the helm, Edgeley can not help but be arising town. E. H. Jones in Steele Ozone I visited all the places of interest during my stay in Jamestown, including the asylum.

Mrs. Mary Gray, widow of Robert Gray, accompanied by her daughter Janet, left Saturday night for her future home in Auburn, N. Y., which wiil be with her mother.

Cowell of Eckelson, caught an antelope, which had been wounded with a shot gun, among his sheep the other day. Bill Murphy also caught one which had been badly wounded with shot.

Fargo Argus: Father D. V. Collins pronounced the marriage vows upon Dennis Maher of Jamestown, and Miss Lizzie Kulewatz of this city, at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon.

The friends of both join in wishing them a happy journey through life. The couple are now stop ping at the Grand Pacific in Moorhead. S. S. Altschul left Saturday for Duluth where $10,000 worth of goods are await ing his arrival to be opened and placed on sale in his new store at that place.

Yesterday was Valentine's day, and the small boy was in receipt of many of those fearful pictures which makes every one laugh out loud, and sometimes add an expressive sentence or two in an undertone. The small boy and girl were not alone in receiving these favors. Some of the older people were not for gotten by any means, and several of the school teachers were, as usual, marks for St. Valentine's shafts. Postmaster Smith's force will no doubt be busy tor several days looking for valentines for the anxious inquirer* at the general de liv&y. Yesterday at noon the postoffic* was jammed with them. The Mabel Snow company left for Oakes this morning, where they will fill an engagement to night. Contrary to expectation the performance given Saturday night contained lit tle or nothing to offend, and those who went expecting to be greeted with a sen sational program were disappointed* There was a big audience, all of the mas ouline gender, but many other theatrical plays haye been here before audiences largely composed of ladies, about whch more criticism could have been made, than at Saturday night's performance. The show was comparatively a tame af fair, and relied on its unique scheme of advertising to draw its bouses. D. C. Griffin: I think Jamestown ought to reorganize and put some new life into her board of trade. I see other townn are doing something in that line, and Park River, a small plaoe, has aboard of trade that is going after a railroad. I also see that it is proposed to start a starch factory here. A board of trade could take hold and help out suoh enter prises. We need to drop our factional differences now for good, and pull to gether for some benefit to the town and county. We need emmigrants here the worst way. We have had a good crop and the benefits are being felt in all quarters. Now is the time to take ad vantage of it, as a community. There is plenty of work for aboard of trade. Members of the city council now claim that they are in a position to act legally in the matter of electric lights. The ordinance repealing the electric light franchise must have 10 days publi cation, after which the next steps to be taken will bo developed. Some of the councilmen are in corres pondence about the cost of running arc lights. Replies are expected before the next regular meeting. If the city can not get lights for $95 a year, or less than the tignre at which the Electric Light company refused to furnish them, then some other plan will be considered. There is talk about the old water gas Bcheme, an agent for which visited the city once to see what could be done in getting a franchise for a plant to make gas out of water by some peculiar process which does not seem to have found many municipal customers elsewhere. Another plan may be that the city will consider the pur chase of the poles, wires and dynamo of the Electrie Light company and try to run the machinery by a water motor, or water wheel turned by the artesian well power. Mayor Fuller has five days in which he can veto the ordinance and it is said to be doubtful if the same could be passed over the veto. From Monday's Daily. Dowagiac. Geo. Wylie left this afternoon for Min neapolis. The mercury registered pretty low down again this morning. Mayor Fuller signed the ordinance repealing the electric light franchise. Another consignment of paraphernalia for the Odd Fellows came in this morn ing. The high school pupils will give a literary entertainment every two weeks hereafter, at the school room.

Sheriff.Schmitz has traveled around a good deal this winter, and says there is more snow on the ground in every direc tion than he ever saw before. He thinks there is no doubt about the sloughs be ing filled full of water this spring. A man from St. Paul tells the Bis marck Tribune that Denny Hannifin is now able to move around a little on crutches. He has suffered terribly, hav ing to keep his leg in one position all the time, in a plaster of paris case with a thirty-five pound weight hung on his foot to keep bis limb from contracting. It is not known whether amestown contractors had an opportunity to bid on the work or not, but the following from the Fargo Forum may be of interest: "The firm of Larson & Knudson have secured the contract to furnish all neces sary lumber for the construction of 217 houses on Fort Totten Indian reserva tion. The contract with the government is a large one, and many firms were com peting. but our Fargo men secured the plum." Last evening at the residence of W. B. McLain, there was an enjoyable company of young people, about twenty in num ber, who assembled in honor of Miss Georgie McLain's fourteenth birthday. She received a number of presents from her girl friends and from her father and *"r~^?~~$ mother a handsome piano lamp. An ele gant lunch wu served at six, after which music and gamed were indulged in, by the young folks until 0 o'clock, when they dispersed to their several homes, all wishing Miss Georgie many returns of the occasion and that all her future years may be as bright and happy as the present. Jt is expected the transfer of the Hen drick's farm to the Sisters of St. Joseph will be made this week, as soon as cer tain papers have been secured to con clude the sale. While the purchase was made for the purpose of erecting an orphan asylum, it is said nothing will be done in that direction this year. It is proposed to crop the place this season and probably next, during which time plans may be perfected for a building of the character desired by the society. There are 320 acres in the farm, which is situated less than two miles south of Jamestown. One of the finest groves in the state is growing upon the land, and the buildings are of the very beet class, the bsrn being one of the finest in the county. Mr. and Mrs. J. P, Baker entertained the Social Literary circle last evening. There was a large attendance and several new members participated in the read ings. The circle will be entertained on Monday evening next by Mr. and Miss Greene in the Gladstone parlors, and the evening will be spent in readings and recitations from favorite poets. On the evening of March 7, at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Jones, the circle will debate the following resolution: "Re solved, That foreign emigration as now permitted by our government is detri mental to the best interests of the country." The affirmative will be led by Judge Hamilton and the negative by Mr. O. H. Holt. A gentleman named Briggs, represent ing the National Union company, was in the city la6t week trying to buy Chas. Hensel's stock of groceries. He proposed to open a co-operative store, with Mr. Hensel as manager on salary and com mission. No change in ruling prices was to be made, but all members of the farm ers' alliance patronizing the concern were to have a sh-.re in the profits accrued during the year. Mr. Hensel could not see any "poetry" in it, and the deal was abandoned. The agent reports several stores opened on this plan in South Da kota, but none as yet established in this state. Clerk hire is more expensive here and other conditions are less favorable for a successful venture of that kind. FromAVedencJdav's Dailv. Brader Spader. Don't become constipated. BeechanTs Pills.
